!help! Is200 Wont Start !

Recommended Posts

Dee, glad your car is sorted now mate :)

My car is getting close to 60k, it's just over 4 yrs old. I was going to leave it till 70k till doing the cambelt, based on the fact that it used to be 100k so down to 60k might a bit conservative.

But after reading this I don't think I'll risk it.

WOW, theres alot of **** being spouted in this topic.

it will do no harm, on getting the timing set back to the correct marks , and putting a new belt on.

this will cause no more damage than "could have been caused" so far.

otherwise you take the risk of stripping the head off to look at a perfect head............. :rolleyes: trust me, it has no damage!

when i ran my garage/workshop in Germany, if a customer brought a car in for a snapped belt, the first task, was to check with a belt on.

on most of the engines there was no damage and the cost was only the change of the belt and pulleys.

the is200 engine is non-interference so you should have no Valve / piston strike what so ever

THE 1GFE ENGINE WILL BEND VALVES AND SORRY BUB BUT THEY ARE MAD MONEY FOR the valves :crying:
